Resumo

WEGNER, Wiliam et al. Patient safety in the care of hospitalised children: evidence for paediatric nursing. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2017, vol.38, n.1, e68020.  Epub 04-Maio-2017. ISSN 1983-1447.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-1447.2017.01.68020.

Objectives

To describe evidence of international literature on the safe care of the hospitalised child after the World Alliance for Patient Safety and list contributions of the general theoretical framework of patient safety for paediatric nursing.

Method

An integrative literature review between 2004 and 2015 using the databases PubMed, Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Scopus, Web of Science and Wiley Online Library, and the descriptors Safety or Patient safety, Hospitalised child, Paediatric nursing, and Nursing care.

Results

Thirty-two articles were analysed, most of which were from North American, with a descriptive approach. The quality of the recorded information in the medical records, the use of checklists, and the training of health workers contribute to safe care in paediatric nursing and improve the medication process and partnerships with parents.

Conclusion

General information available on patient safety should be incorporated in paediatric nursing care.
